SUPPLY CORD
Before using the dryer for the first time
wipe the inside of the drum and door with a
damp cloth.
Make sure that the laundry you are going to
dry is suitable for drying in a tumble dryer,
as shown by the care symbols on each item.
Clothes preparation
AIR INLET
VENTS
AIR OUTLETS
IN BASE
IMPORTANT: This dryer must be
installed such that the air inlets and
outlets are not restricted (fig. 1).
There should be a gap of at least 12mm
(0.5 inches) between the sides rear and base
of the machine and the surrounding walls,
cabinets and floor.
To ensure adequate ventilation the space
between the bottom of the machine and the
floor must not be obstructed.
NEVER install the dryer up against
curtains.
Prevent items from falling or collecting
behind and beneath the dryer as these may
obstruct the air inlets and outlets.
Check that all fastenings are closed and that
pockets are empty. Turn the articles inside
out. Place clothes loosely in the drum to
make sure that they don’t get tangled.
Do not overload the drum, particularly
when drying large items, otherwise, the
laundry may stick to the drum and not dry
evenly.
Maximum drying weight
● Cottons Max. 6 kg
● Synthetics Max. 3 kg
Sort the load as follows:
A) By care symbols
On the collar or inside seam:
Suitable for tumble drying.
Tumble drying at high temperature.
Tumble drying at low temperature only.
Do not tumble dry.
B) By amount and thickness
Whenever the load is bigger than the
dryer capacity, separate clothes
according to thickness (e.g. towels from
thin underwear).
C) By type of fabric
Cottons/linen: Towels, cotton jersey,
bed and table linen.

Preparing the load
Synthetics: Blouses, shirts, overalls, etc.
made of polyester or polyamid, as well
as for cotton/synthetic mixes.
D) By drying level
● Sort into: iron dry, cupboard dry, etc.
● For delicate articles press the ‘HEAT
SETTING’ button to select low drying
temperature.
Door
Opening the door
The door may be opened by pushing on the
textured panel of the door (fig 2). This is a
safety feature to prevent the entrapment of
minors in the drum.
2
Do not tumble dry:
Woollens, silk, delicate fabrics, nylon
stockings, delicate embroidery, fabrics with
metallic decorations, garments with PVC or
leather trimmings, training shoes, bulky
items such as sleeping bags, etc.
IMPORTANT: Do not dry articles which
have been treated with a dry cleaning
fluid or rubber clothes (danger of fire or
explosion).
Energy saving
Only put into the tumble dryer laundry
which has been thoroughly wrung or spindried. The drier the laundry the shorter the
drying time thus saving electricity.
ALWAYS try to dry the maximum weight
of laundry, this will save time and
electricity.
To restart the dryer, close the door and
press the ‘ON’ button.
WARNING!
WHEN THE TUMBLE DRYER IS
IN USE THE DRUM AND DOOR
MAY BE VERY HOT.
NEVER exceed the maximum weight, this
will waste time and electricity.
ALWAYS check that the filter is clean
before every drying cycle as this aids
efficiency.
NEVER put dripping wet items into the
tumble dryer, this may damage the
appliance and waste time and efficiency.

Filter
Water Container
IMPORTANT: To maintain the efficiency
of the dryer check that the fluff filter is
clean before each drying cycle.
The water removed from the laundry
during the drying cycle is collected in a
container at the bottom of the dryer.

When the container is full the ‘EMPTY
WATER’ indicator on the control panel will
light, and the container MUST be emptied.
However, we recommend that the container
is emptied after each drying cycle.
NOTE: Very little water will collect during
the first few cycles of a new machine as an
internal reservoir is filled first.
1. Gently remove lint using a soft brush or
your fingertips (fig 3).
Clean Filter Indicator lights when the
filter needs cleaning. If the laundry is not
drying check that the filter is not clogged.
To remove the container:
1. Gently pull the bottom of the kickplate
so that it unclips from the dryer. The top
section can then be unhinged allowing
the kickplate to be completely removed
(fig. 4).
